“Mountains Gandalf! I want to see mountains!”
- Bilbo Baggins of the Shire
Sometimes I crave seeing mountains in times like these. They bring me solace and help me to stay connected with the larger part of our planet.
And yet, it’s difficult to believe that we live in a time such as this. With so much capacity as a species, we can still somehow resort to the base level of backwards thinking that drives us to hatred and division amongst ourselves.
If you choose to always look down, you will never see what you can do if you were to look up.
“You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act because you think it is connected to some higher purpose.”
- Jean Luc Picard
“People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them”
- James Baldwin
“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
- Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Well said, and fantastic images from our late Alberta trip! I can’t wait to be back in the mountains.
